Even though I read some of her previous books, including The Lean, I really appreciated this one. It is very complete and encompasses all aspects of protein choices on health, the environment and the animals. Also, Bruce Friedrich contribution is very interesting and enlightening.
I'll read anything by Kathy Freston since she's been instrumental in helping me construct a healthier diet for myself and my family over the years. This book has a little drier tone than her previous books, perhaps due to her co-author, but addresses the subject of protein consumption, jousting with the notion that so many hold that we must eat meat to get adequate protein. Also delving into the future of faux meat production was a heads up for me about what we may be finding in groceries in the future. Heartening news too about how the shift to plant-based and faux meat production will rapidly and effectively clean up the environmental issues that factory farming now create. She's always been on the cutting edge of the plant-based revolution and her personal beauty reflects the work she's done and the diet she's lobbying for.
“Clean Protein” is absolutely captivating; it is relevant, informative, and entertaining. The book relates to its audience, providing awareness on the issue of the overconsumption of animal protein in a manner that is approachable for those who have not already adopted a plant-based diet. The exciting ways the book details a future of “clean protein” provides a unique perspective on an already fascinating topic. The book does an excellent job of combining facts and history with contemporary and future possibilities, delicious sounding recipes, and a personal voice that overall makes this book a comprehensive story about the way in which a plant-based diet can change much more beyond personal health.
Kathy and Bruce pleasantly and concisely bring the case for the way humanity must approach food, if we are to live a fair number of decades or centuries longer. Great recipes make it a complete "how-to" book as well. Glad to see a recipe index AND a subject index!
